As Greycourt’s President, Matthew Litwin is responsible for strategic leadership of Greycourt’s growth and long-term evolution. He is a member of the firm’s management committee, works directly with clients as a lead advisor, and manages Greycourt’s manager research team, which provides ideas, insights, and analysis for the firm’s clients across a broad spectrum of asset classes and strategies. Matt’s client facing-work is focused on the firm’s rapidly-growing Collaborative Solutions business line, which delivers efficient and highly customized strategic consulting services for very large family offices.
Matt originally joined Greycourt’s Portland, Oregon office in 2010 to run alternative asset research before being promoted to head of research in 2012. Matt’s 25-year investing career began on the sell-side as an equity research analyst at Goldman Sachs, having joined the firm shortly after graduation from college. He was promoted to associate analyst after a year at the firm and had sole coverage of several retailing sectors. Following the firm’s IPO, he partnered with the managing director who ran his group to start Uncommon Goods, a specialty retailer that sells its products via catalog and the web. After helping to establish the operations side of that business, Matt began a career on the buy-side, initially as an analyst covering consumer and retailing companies for Andor Capital Management, a large equity long/short hedge fund based in Manhattan, and later at Viking Global Investors in Greenwich, CT, also a large long/short hedge fund. After his first two years at Viking, Matt was given the responsibility of solely managing a consumer sector portfolio for Viking.
Matt is a member of the board of directors for Ring Family Group, LLC, a natural resources-related family holding company, and is a former trustee and treasurer of the French American International School.
